Tiffany Haddish Weighs in on Game of Thrones

-This week’s Gay of Thrones features Tiffany Haddish and remains more entertaining than the show they’re recapping.

-Meanwhile, next Star Wars movie will be from David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the guys behind Game of Thrones. I can’t tell if the timing of this announcement is terrible (because of how much everyone is hating on them this week), or the best they could do (because we may all be hating on them even more after Sunday’s finale).

-It looks like Jennifer Lopez‘s daughter might follow in her mom’s footsteps. Girl’s got pipes!

George Clooney says he once advised Ben Affleck to turn down the Batman role. “I actually did talk to him about it. I said, ‘Don’t do it. ‘It was only from my experience, which is, you know…He did great, though.”

Keanu Reeves is perfect and we must protect him at all costs.

-Disney’s disturbing consolidation continues. They now have full control of Hulu after buying out Comcast’s stake.

-The glowing reviews for Fleabag’s season two (which drops on Amazon Friday) don’t do it justice. I binged the whole season in a weekend, and it’s perfection.

-Here’s the trailer for the Party of Five reboot. I have concerns.

-Meanwhile, I’m pretty sold on the new 90210 show based on the new trailer.

-The cast for Cate Blanchett‘s upcoming FX show is stacked! (As if Cate weren’t enough.)

-I’ve dropped the CW superhero shows because there’s too many better shows to watch and too little time, but I caught last night’s Arrow season finale (which was basically the series finale cause it seems like next season’s final 10 eps will be a weird crossover setup), and holy wow did it get me right in the feels. What a perfect, beautiful scene to close out the show — both in the present day and 20 years in the future. Basically, this reaction video was me.

-Someone is adapting Eleanor & Park?!? I am both extremely excited and totally terrified that they’ll screw it up. It’s being produced by Brad Pitt’s Plan B, so there’s hope.

Mel Gibson’s publicist is both ballsy and delusional — which I guess is a requirement to be Mel Gibson’s publicist.

-The latest trailer for The Dead Don’t Die leans into Adam Driver‘s deadpan delivery.

Angelina Jolie is magnificent in the Maleficent: Mistress of Evil trailer.

Gwyneth Paltrow Shares Her Wedding Album

-On GOOP, Gwyneth Paltrow shared 47 photos from her wedding to Brad Falchuk — but she didn’t caption any of the ones that feature famous people so you have to do some guessing. That’s clearly Robert Downey Jr giving a toast in #37, and Rob Lowe cutting a rug in #44.

Diane Kruger and Norman Reedus had a baby!

-This week’s SNL promo featured Pete Davidson making a joke about quickie engagements and Ariana Grande was NOT having it. She’s since deleted her tweets but my timeline was wild last night…

-Meanwhile, I’m very much looking forward to seeing Maggie Rogers as the musical guest. “Alaska” gets played on repeat A LOT on my phone. Here’s a recap of her best songs.

Alec Baldwin continues to behave exactly how you’d assume he would. He was arrested today for allegedly punching a man over a parking space.

Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio released a voting PSA.

-Look, I think Rebel Wilson‘s rom-com spoof Isn’t It Romantic looks super fun and I adore the premise. But she really, really shouldn’t have said on Ellen, “I’m proud to be the first-ever plus-sized girl to be the star of a romantic comedy.”  She can’t just erase the history of actresses who’ve starred in body-positive romances, including Queen Latifah, Mo’Nique, Toni Colette, Nia Vardalos and Ricki Lake.

Julia Roberts’ Homecoming premieres on Amazon today, and critics are in love.

-I adore the premise from the new AMC show being exec-produced by Rashida Jones and Will McCormack. Kevin Can F*** Himself is told from the POV of a typical “sitcom wife,” described as “a beauty paired with a less attractive, dismissive, caveman-like husband who gets to be a jerk because she’s a nag and he’s ‘funny.'” *grabby hands*

Goddamit, Hugh Jackman. You were supposed to be one of the good ones.

-I’m not sure why Amy Schumer is showing off her belly bump but here it is.

Les Mooves is calling himself “retired.” That’s one way to spin it…

-Next week we’ll find out who the new People’s Sexiest Man Alive is going to be. The Bradley Cooper speculation is strong which — if it happens — will be interesting to watch thanks to his new, reluctant movie star persona.

Tiffany Haddish is the latest celeb to enjoy Buzzfeed’s puppy interview.

Aisha Tyler recently posted a kissy photo with Emily Bett Rickards and now there’s lots of trashy stories about how they’re dating. I’d love it if it were true, but I follow both of them on Instagram and that gang is always kissing their friendsLike, a lot.

-Riverdale’s Cole Sprouse finds romance in the hospital in the trailer for Five Feet Apart.

Emma Stone Hits the Streets with Billy Eichner

-Here’s the Billy on the Street segment with Emma Stone, in which he tries to convince her to join Instagram. The girl around the 3:30 min marks slays me (“Even Will Smith is on it!”)

David Marchese interviews are always a delight, but his latest with Emma Thompson takes it to a whole new level of awesomeness. She talks about the #MeToo movement, her evolving feminism, and drops bon mots such as: “Although we mustn’t get gloomy. Lots of things are better today: dentistry.”

-Her interview-turned-dance with Stephen Colbert was also magic.

-The White Boy Rick promo tour has given Matthew McConaughey multiple opportunities to repeat his non-so-great beliefs about the “problem” with single-parent families.

-Goddamit. Aaron Paul deserves a better a show than Westworld.

-Manager Scooter Braun says he used to worry every night that Justin Bieber was going to die of an overdose. “There was a time when I would go to sleep almost every night when he had the money to fly away from me and I was worried every night that I was gonna lose him. That was the time when I was telling him he’s not allowed to work. He used to yell and scream at me and he wanted to put music out. He wanted to tour, but I thought if he did that, he would die.”

-Save us, Rihanna!

-The cast of To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before wrote their own fanfiction and I would read it all…

-Oof — emails released in a lawsuit show that Warren Beatty dismissed test audiences’ initial reactions to his movie Rules Don’t Apply because they were “too ethnic.”

Norm Macdonald apologized for his “Down Syndrome” remark, tried to clarify his Roseanne/Louis C.K. comments, and added “If 500 women go against a man, obviously the guy is guilty. But with Chris Hardwick, it was one woman against one man. So, I was saying that it was good … that Chris Hardwick has been rehabilitated as he’s going to get.” Yeah, he should probably just stop now.

-Oh good, he just might.  He gave the New Yorker what he’s said may be his last-ever print interview.

-According the NYT’s new story on Les Moonves, the board only began to turn on him when they discovered, after months of assuring them the accusations were false or “grossly overstated,” that he was trying to find one of his accusers a job at CBS in exchange for her silence.

-BoJack Horseman’s Raphael Bob-Waksberg apologized for the “original sin” of casting his show with only white people.

-The Predator director Shane Black gave an emotional apology on the red carpet, telling the AP “I take full responsibility. I’m very deeply sorry…I hope I learn from this.” I hope he reached out to Olivia Munn.

-Speaking of Munn, The Predator sex offender’s victim has broken her silence to thank the actress for taking a stand on her behalf: “I was not able to speak for myself when I was 14…I am also eternally grateful for Olivia Munn’s action. She spoke up for me. She took a stance for me. In turn she stood for all who have suffered like I have. To be acknowledged by a stranger, on a public platform about this issue is incredibly empowering.”

-The Good Place’s Jameela Jamil took down a gym bodyshamer.

Lindsay Morgan from The 100 and Emily Bett Rickards from Arrow keep posting videos of them working out together and it makes my gym sessions look like naptime.

Judy Greer cried while talking about BFF Jennifer Garner on yesterday’s episode of The Social.

-Here’s the first full promo for Julia Roberts‘ new Amazon show Homecoming, which looks creepy af. It screened at TIFF this week and people dug it.
